Cleaning with Charis
Charis spent the night with us for the first time ever last night! We have been looking forward to this time ever since she was born! She slept in till 8 this morning, and we had a leisurely breakfast after teeth-brushing and getting dressed--in Jim's old Jambo Kenya T-shirt from our trip to Kenya when he was 6 years old. By the way, happy 30th birthday, Jim!
Since it was 38° and alternately raining and snowing (yes!) outside, Charis and I made our own fun inside. Well, part of the time I was outside cleaning the sliding glass doors which were semi-opaque half-way up, thanks to Hero and Zephyr! Jambo, Charis!
Peekaboo came along to try to get outside, and Charis had fun trying to pick him up. She almost managed a couple times!
Then there was the fun of watching Mimi work--and making more work for her so she wouldn't be bored!
This picture makes me think of I Corinthians 13:12, "For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known."
I gave Charis a paper towel to play with--but she wanted to work! Just call me Grandma Sawyer!
Good job, Charis! I think I'll always save washing windows for days when you come over, you're such a good helper!
